Deuteronomy 29 & 30

  1. Picture the moving scene described in 29:1,2, 10 11, and consider what strong reasons the people had for being loyal to the Lord.
    Why, then, did Moses fear that they would not prove steadfast?
    See 29:4, 18 19; cf. Acts 20:29, 30.
  2. For what purpose is revelation given, according to 29:29?
    Cf. Jas. 1:22. What is God’s character as revealed in chapter 30?
    And what is his people’s responsibility?
  3. Compare 30:11-14 with Rom. 10:6-9 and note ways in which the Old Testament law and the New Testament gospel are identical.

Note. 29:19. ‘Bring disaster on the watered land as well as the dry’: a proverbial expression meaning ‘to destroy all’. It expressed here that the outcome of the idolater’s attitude and action is utter destruction.
